More Ombre Emboss Resist Background Cards

Hi Everybody!

Somebody stop me! I am loving making the ombre' emboss resist background cards shown in Jennifer McGuire's latest video.  I embossed 8 more yesterday.  I can go back later and sponge on the ink colors.  I made 2 more yesterday.  I think I'll stop with these and move on to Valentine cards now lol.


I used Salty Ocean in the first one for the ink color and second one, I blended Abandoned Coral and Worn Lipstick together.  I have had most of my distress inks for about 5 years and just realized I need refills for several of the ones I got originally, such as the Worn Lipstick.  The sentiment stamps both came from a Hero Arts stamp set.  I don't see a name on it.  It must be old because the stamps have all turned yellow.  Hmmm....   Don't you love the sparkly embossing powder on the die cuts?  I had never thought to do that.  I bought the JudiKins Irridescent embossing powder like Jennifer used and it worked great, just a little messy.  I had it everywhere.  I later realized I had a Stampendous Kaleidescope embossing powder, very similar looking to the JudiKins.  I had never used it.  I probably thought it was glitter when I bought it LOL!

I think it's great to have several of these on hand for different occasions.  Leave a comment if you have any questions and/or how to contact you.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.


P.S.  I was playing with an editing program and changed the Exposure on the first card.  I didn't realize it turned the background yellow.  Ugh!

Every one of these cards are gorgeous! I love the simplicity of them but they still give a great artistic look!
